The first time we met was at a party.
Your ex arrived to show off the person he'd left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.
I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty--and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.
The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.
The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.
I know I'm crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that's the only reaction I can get out of you, I'll gladly take it.
You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.
I think I'm falling for you, and I know it's wrong. I know that I'm only supposed to be the adviser to your program and nothing more, but here's the thing. I think you're falling for me too.
Review by Lorena
Oh my god, Zach and Poppy were just outrageously cute together. I loved how their relationship developed and how hooked they got me from the blurb itself.
Ms. Ryan knows how to deliver a great story, romantic, and totally swoony.
Zach -- oh my god, he was just to die for. I don't understand how he was single when he met Poppy. I mean, he was downright hot, he had that sexy dirty talk attached to him, I mean come on! How was it possible that he didn't have someone when he met Poppy!!
Any way, I understood Poppy's hesitation when she met Zach and didn't want to dish out her digits to him. She was just trying to get the ex jealous but when fate puts her in front of Zach as her adviser, oh gosh, that's when the good stuff starts.
I love, love me a good forbidden love story. And Ms. Ryan surely delivered with this deliciously, well written book!
Another deliciously 4.5 stars for xo, Zach!
